Elaborate, please. What do you mean "put the stage together"? Did you go to any of the other Boston shows? Do you think they purposefully opened and closed the Boston run with Morning Dew? And, if so, why?

I meant stacking the speakers, wiring for sound, etc. That was the first night of the Music Hall run, and the equipment had arrived late. They were traveling with a good size sound system (not yet the fully mature Wall of Sound), and putting it together took time. Lots of time.

I wasn't at any of the other Boston shows that year, and can't tell you why they opened and closed the run with Morning Dew. What I can say is that it was my favorite tune at the time, and made a great start for my first show.

Thanks, Mr. Rats. I love these little morsels of on-the-ground reporting. Maybe the Grateful Dead archive will start a "story" archive like the one they are always taliking about on NPR.

I would have felt the same way as soon as I heard those first few notes of Dew (though, I kind of dig the "cymbal" start they used in the 60's.)
